Cinquain Sonnet

After writing a few haiku sonnets, and it being April (NaPoWriMo), I got the idea to fold the Cinquain into the sonnet framework, just as David Marshall has done with the haiku.

The Cinquain Sonnet consists of two 5-line stanzas of traditional cinquain, with counts of 2-4-6-8-2 syllables per line, respectively, followed by a truncated, 4-line cinquain stanza of 2-4-6-8 syllables.  (or, why not 8-6-4-2?  I’m still playing with it…)

Ok, I’ve only ever written the one…

Winter Madness 

…ok…this makes two…
